I’ve been playing with lamps a little bit. Years ago (okay a decade or 2 but who’s counting) this is what the designed looked like – sturdy enough for kid’s play but not very elegant. With some paint and maybe some fabric it does turn out pretty nice.
Here’s my latest on lamps. They’re still solid wood – birch and pine – but the “lamp shade” is not tapered. The lamp shade is wrapped with nice, heavy foil/gold paper. I like the way the floor lamp really brightens up the corner.
The above living room table lamp is slight larger than the two bedroom nightstand lamps below.
